— A school bus carrying students from Wake County's Middle Creek Elementary School rear-ended a car Wednesday afternoon, district spokesman Michael Evans said.

Bus No. 590 was carrying 35 students when the collision happened at Blaney Franks and Ten Ten roads in Apex. One was being treated at the scene for a minor injury, Evans said.

Evans said two passengers from the car were injured, but neither appeared to be serious.

    The parents should sue the school system for the diversity busing that caused this.

    "Just how do u think the bus routes will be any shorter with the neighborhood schools plan."

    Incase you didn't hear, there is no plan. Your kids will continue to be bussed and reassigned repeatedly for at least 2 more decades. Hope you're ok with that. If not, too bad.

    Speeding and talking on her phone. Oh, this was in Wake county? Maybe those things only happen in Durham.

    "Just how do u think the bus routes will be any shorter with the neighborhood schools plan. The board as far as I know has not given any projection as to any gasoline costs savings to the county" superman

    It's not rocket science. I might need a white board to explain the logic to you though.

    Just how do u think the bus routes will be any shorter with the neighborhood schools plan. The board as far as I know has not given any projection as to any gasoline costs savings to the county. In addition many of these buses do more than one route.

    I'll bet the driver was fatigued from the long distance she has to drive to diversify the school.

    Thank God everyone will be ok.

    That's a bad intersection because the roads don't meet at exact 90 degree angles and 1010 curves right to the east of it making it difficult to see cars coming from that direction.

    God bless.
